Pain. Hurt. Life

As I sit here on a Saturday writing this, two fathers have been buried in the past few days. One, a retired business owner, the other, a father of one of our members. Both will be sorely missed. Both families will have a very difficult Father's Day Sunday.
As a pastor I ache with the people I pastor. I also ache with families who are in pain who live in South Carolina. 

Today, and on Sunday, I will pray for:

Charleston, NC
Kirsty Wolleson and Betty Adams and their families.

Cynthia Marie Graham Hurd (54) – Bible study member and manager for the Charleston County Public Library system.
Susie Jackson (87) – a Bible study and church choir member.
Ethel Lee Lance (70) – the church sexton and a former employee at the Gaillard Auditorium.
Depayne Middleton-Doctor (49) – a Bible study teacher employed as a school administrator and admissions coordinator at Southern Wesleyan University.
Clementa C. Pinckney (41) – the church pastor and a South Carolina state senator.
Tywanza Sanders (26) – a Bible study member and 2014 graduate of Allen University who was the nephew of Susie Jackson.
Daniel Simmons (74) – a reverend at the church who also served at Greater Zion A.M.E. Church in Awendaw.
Sharonda Coleman-Singleton (45) – a reverend at the church who was also a speech therapist and track coach at Goose Creek High School.
Myra Thompson (59) – a Bible study teacher and retired high school counselor.
